I’m going to make Tom Cruise wish he were a Tuskegee Airman’

*Terrence Howard is no stranger to success. He started out in a cadre of films such as “Lotto Land,” “Dead Presidents,” “The Players Club,” “The Best Man,” “Get Rich or Dye Tryin’,” and hit pay dirt with “Crash,” “Hustle & Flow,” “Ray,” “The Brave One,” and “Iron Man.” The pinnacle of his success, he feels, is playing a Tuskegee Airman. This is not the first time he has played one. In the 2002 film, “Hart’s War,” with Bruce Willis and Colin Farrell, Howard is prisoner of war Second Lieutenant Lincoln A. Scott in a German camp.

In an exclusive interview with EURweb NY based film reporter Marie Moore, Howard was asked how was it to portray a Tuskegee Airman a second time and his vivacious reply was that it should be a common occurrence.

“This is a story that needs to be told a few times. Like George Lucas (Producer) said the other day, we’re just getting to the point where we need to do the prequel and we need to do the sequel. Those pick-up [he was referring my tape recorder because of the worried look on my face as he paced the room. I can be all the way in the other room in my house and they’re still picking me up]. We need another filmmaker,” Howard continued, “to do the sequel just because it is such an incredible story of heroism and accomplishment.”
